Blue Bauble Cards

Hi again,

I'm back again with a few more Christmas Cards to show you. Usually I make all my cards individually and don't do two the same. This year, as I am a bit behind, once I have found a layout that works I have done a few more that are similar. When I counted up how many I had done, I found I wasn't as far behind as I thought. That was until someone at work asked if I could make him 10 or 12!

I then had to get my skates on! A lot of my cards have cute images etc, so I tried to do some that were a bit more manly for him. I also wanted to do some quick ones to get them done. Here are a few that I came up with...

I have had the blue bauble stickers for years and not known what to do with them so was pleased when I had an idea! The man at work seemed to like them, so they must be ok!

I would like to enter the second card into the following challenge:

Thanks for looking. I'll be back with more soon!

12 Days of Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone,

Well I have been busy making Christmas Cards so thought it was time that I shared some with you. These cards I made using the 12 Days of Christmas papers that I received free with one of the DoCrafts Creativity Magazines. I really liked the papers when I received them, but when I sat down to use them, I really struggled with what to do with them! I didn't have anything else in the range and felt that nothing else I really had went with the papers.

Inspiration struck in the end and I cut out the baubles from one of the papers for the central image and used lots of silver to add some sparkle.

As I was pleased with how the card turned out, I did another one with gold accents instead. 

I have since used these papers for a few other cards and will share them at some point too. I hope you like these cards and if you have also used these papers for your cards I would love to see how you have used them. I will be adding more of my Christmas Cards so keep checking back!

Thanks for looking
